The Anantapur police on Wednesday denied to the reports that it had arrested a person in connection with the case relating to the attack on a woman in an ATM in Bangalore.

Speaking to The Hindu , Anantapur superintendent of police S. Senthil Kumar made it clear that the reports that the Nallacheruvu police had identified a person named Narayana Reddy, a native of the Cheruvuvandla palli of the Nallacheruvu mandal, as the accused of the ATM attack case was a rumour only.

Later in the day, the Nallacheruvu police also confirmed that a manhunt was launched to nab Narayana Reddy, an accused in the case of murdering a woman in 2008. The accused have been missing for the last seven years, the police added.

However, the police also said that Narayana Reddy had no resemblance to the assailant in the ATM attack case that was reported in Bangalore.
